ABOUT ME

Maximo Cobos received the telecommunications engineer degree, the M.S. degree in telecommunication technologies, and the Ph.D. degree in telecommunications, all of them from the Universitat Politècnica de València, Valencia, Spain, in 2006, 2007, and 2009, respectively. His Ph.D. dissertation was awarded with the Ericsson Best Thesis Award on Multimedia Environments from the Spanish National Telecommunications Engineering Association (COIT). He completed with honors his Ph.D studies under the University Faculty Training program (FPU). In 2010, he was awarded with a "Campus of Excellence" post-doctoral fellowship to work at the Institute of Telecommunications and Multimedia Applications (iTEAM). In 2009 and 2011, he was a visiting researcher at Deutsche Telekom Laboratories, Berlin, Germany, where he worked in the field of signal processing for spatial audio. Since 2011, he has been with the Computer Science Department of the Universitat de València, where he is now an Associate Professor. His work is focused on the area of digital signal processing for audio and multimedia applications, where he has published more than 90 technical papers in international journals and conferences. Dr. Cobos is a Senior Member of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), and a Full Member of the Acoustical Society of America (ASA).

His research lines are centered on signal processing algorithms for sound source localization, source separation, speech enhancement, room acoustics, array signal processing, spatial sound and machine learning.

He is an affiliate member of the IEEE Audio and Acoustic Signal Processing Technical Committee, and a member of Audio Signal Processing Technical Committee of the European Acoustics Association (EAA).

He is a reviewer for several conferences and journals related to signal processing, such as IEEE Transactions on Signal Processing, IEEE/ACM Transactions on Audio, Speech and Language Processing, IEEE Signal Processing Letters, EURASIP Journal on Advances in Signal Processing and the Journal of the Acoustical Society of America. Since 2018, he serves as an Associate Editor for IEEE Signal Processing Letters and EURASIP Journal on Audio, Speech and Music Processing.
